You might be better off asking how many have got this coil.

Can you tell us how it compares to the x-coil, it might not be a fair comparison, 17" x-coil against 12" Zsearch I guess.

No Dave my question is not how many of the new NF12" coils are out and since the 1st batch is only 200
Im not asking for a comparison between any x or other coils
I guess Im asking any of the 200 owners out there ,that have this coil what settings they are using nothing more

Lesgold, who I believe is an experienced Z user is using the same settings as per his standard Z coil for the area they were detecting. ( from memory I think he was the person I asked for advice re settings 5 or 6 years ago when I first purchased my Z)

see his comments Dec17th.

Hi Marty, you could send Les a PM and ask for his settings, I don't think he would consider them a secret.

Marty, I got to use a 12” NF Z Search test coil.  Settings I used were:-
High Yield
Difficult
Threshold level - 28
Threshold pitch - 40 (personal)
Volume limit - 10 (headphones) - later reduced this to 9
Sensitivity - 14
Volume - 8

Audio smoothing - Off
Ground balance mode - Semi-auto

I have done a few YouTube videos using the test coil.  Link to channel under my signature.  Hope this helps. Very Happy

Hi Annie, Ever since owning the Z, I have used HY/Difficult, now trying HY/Normal (when I remember), ie dont really change my settings, just the standard EMI and ground balance, looks like you change your settings, but what about Normal and General checks?

Thanks

Peter

G’day Peter, I only had test coil for a short time.  In the area I detected, my experience with Normal & General were very noisy with the Minelab 14”so I didn’t try them, with Z Search 12”.

Ditto, but I am not rushing in, glad I held back buying the Z, 19" coil even at the cheaper price for initial Z buyers..
